Belz Museum of Asian & Judaic Art The Belz Museum of Asian & Judaic Art is located in the heart of Downtown Memphis. The Belz Museum has 5 permanent exhibit galleries: 3 Asian, 1 Judaic, and the Holocaust Memorial Gallery. Special exhibits are brought in semi-annually. The museum is unofficially called “The Jade Museum,” since one of the main materials featured is jade in sculptural form. The main Asian collection features artworks from the Qing Dynasty which ran from 1644-1911. The Judaic Gallery contains over 200 works of art created by contemporary Jewish artists working and living in Israel today. The Holocaust Memorial Gallery offers visitors an opportunity to meet survivors of the Holocaust through photographic portraits and biographical sketches. It is also a repository for items, stories and contemporary art that will honor survivors and their families and preserve their history.
Tour groups of 25 or more can also participate in an afternoon tea, a light contemporary lunch or a Chinese feast. Distinctive gift items for special occasions are available for sale in the gift shop. The museum's entrance is located inside the lobby of the Pembroke Square building at 119. S.
